Better Than A Thousand – “Value Driven” LP
Frontman Ray Cappo, veteran of the New York scene ( Youth Of Today and Shelter) joined up with members of Damnation A.D. and Battery. Value Driven was the follow-up album to Just One, the debut of 1997 – “They never lose their inimitable DIY spirit during this time: Ray is not actually allowed to produce the second album “Value Driven” because of his contract with Roadrunner, but the band still secretly records the record in Ken’s bed and bathroom and then self-releases it as a bootleg.” …Released by Epitaph later that year. Whatever, label blurb. Reissued in 2020 by Germanys’ End Hits Records (double-imported via the US, thus the high price), and remastered and remixed by Ken Olden. Including five extra ‘rare’ tracks and a poster insert.
